Hospitality design specialists have completed a new design and rebrand for popular Pan-Asian restaurant and bar Tampopo as it launches a new site in the heart of London’s cosmopolitan Wimbledon neighbourhood.

Following success in Manchester and London, Tampopo has launched its first new location in central Wimbledon. The empty space provided a blank canvas for the Jones AD team to shape their design to deliver a stylish, contemporary venue that works perfectly from an operational perspective.

Furthermore, a space was zoned to include options to suit all guests. From fun, sociable areas to meet and mingle to more intimate spaces for dining. A raised area includes the open kitchen pass, visible from the entrance and throughout the restaurant, allowing guests to enjoy the theatre of chefs at work, with cooking and ingredients on display. This area features a mirrored wall panel, overlaid with graphics of cranes and koi – this gives the impression of a double width space and reflects the brightly-coloured lanterns and panelled ceiling above, alongside cinematic projections of anime cartoons add interest and energy to the space.

Crest’s Shelly Majolica Blue, Shelly Dark Grape, Shelly Anenome, and Old English Hazel leathers were carefully selected for this project. They were utlised to enhance not only the aesthetics but also the comfort of the restaurant. These premium quality leathers were chosen for their luxurious texture, rich colours, and durability. This ensures that the restaurant’s furniture not only looks stunning but also provides a comfortable and inviting experience for guests. Therefore, the combination of these leathers adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the restaurant’s ambiance. This creates a welcoming atmosphere that enhances the overall dining experience.
